Is it impossible to buy this release on its own? It would really piss me off if that were the case.

You can purchase the DP6 with the 2/2/70 and 12/20/69 as a single purchase. However Dave's Picks are limited edition releases (13,000 this year, I think). I assume that this number includes all purchased by subscription so if subscriptions are higher then there won't be a lot available for single purchase. Last year you could purchase all 4 releases on their own, however they all sold out. It seemed like the last two sold out pretty quick after they were made available.

As long as the subscription doesn't sell out before Jan 22, you'll be able to buy #6 on its own when it comes out, but without the bonus disc.
Since, according to the blurb, the bonus disc will be 12/21/69 (less than 40 minutes of it "new," so probably a less-than-earth-shaking disc), you probably won't be missing that much if you don't get the subscription.

Actually I'm surprised it hasn't sold out yet. 13,000 didn't seem like that high a number.
And if you miss out, well, deadheads are renowned for copying things for each other...

Now that we know some of the release details, of course I have to wonder what recovered reels DIDN'T get picked! I think Lemieux said there were "about 15-16 reels that contained about 10 hours of uncirculated music." The 2/11/70 first show is the only other one we know about so far.

I believe the Dave's Pick itself can be purchased on its own, the bonus disc of 70/02/02 will be available only to subscribers.

I think the subscriber only disc will be 12/21/69 not 2/2/70 if I'm reading this correctly.

From my understanding it's not possible to get any of last year's releases at this point, but you can still get a subscription for this year. http://www.dead.net/store/music/live-shows/daves-picks-2013-subscription

You can still sign up for the 2013 Dave's Picks subscriptoon(until Jan 22nd), but not for previous years...
